Rise Sun has its moments, but my takeaway is they tried way too hard to hit all the hot button social/political/environmental topics - and they did it with a passive-aggressive "light and love" approach. I was disappointed.
Their set at 4848 at Snowshoe earlier this month was brilliant - because they reached deep and played older favorites, with just the right mix of stuff off the new album.
Now, as I finish this ramble and get around to landing the plane.....
Lettuce was unbelievably entertaining. I was pleasantly surprised by their ability to hold the interest of a crowd with nothing but funky jamming and no lyrics. Their set was fun - as evidenced by multiple episodes of my "58 year old white guy dance".
